My strawberries are starting to produce but the roly polies are the only ones getting them. What do you do to control them?

I put a shallow bowl of beer nearby to lure the overnight predators in my strawberries. The snails come out at night and are even worse than the pill bugs, though in the morning you'll only see the pill bugs.

For pill bugs I've had luck with sprinkling some cedar mulch around (it doesn't need to be dense or deep) and adding a little orange oil to some Garrett juice in water and spritzing it around.

I've had good luck putting coffee grounds around affected plants.

Ive been seeing a bunch of rolly polies around our flower beds. Will they damage plants or flowers.

I sprinkled some of the Sluggo Plus (that has spinosad) and that knocked out the snails and pillbugs that were getting my strawberries. It worked very fast - overnight.
